Take junk from around the house - including junk mail! - and turn it all into sturdy, colorful pages in a personalized journal.


In this video workshop, Carolyn Dube encourages you to gather up washi tape, ribbon, stamps and any other collections of "stuff" around the house or in your mixed-media supply stash. She'll show you how to give purpose to the junk cluttering up your space by creating a Junk Journal! It all begins with deconstructing a hardcover book and determining the size of your journal. Then, you'll learn how to make decorative pages, envelope pages, pages for writing and even pen holders. The best part about this mixed-media journal is how easy it is to customize the different features to create the Junk Journal that is perfect for you!
